Here is part of the pattern. This is for a pair of socks. (I can’t post the link but they are the cottage slipper socks on lionbrand’s website if you need more details)
[B]Next (dec) rnd K 6, k2tog, place plastic marker, k 12, k2tog, place plastic marker, k 6.
Cont in St st rep dec rnd every 4 rnds 4 times dec 1 st before each plastic marker-20 sts
rem. Work even until 12" from beg, ending at beg of rnd. [/B]
When it says, “K6, k2tog” …is this saying to K5 and then knit the last two together…counting as 1K…with a total of 6?
The second part doesn’t make sense at all to me. Maybe it’s the way it’s worded…but it’s making my head spin trying to figure it out! I tried doing the St st 4 times around and then a dec st on the following round. This doesn’t seem to be doing anything and it’s giving me less stitches on only two needles…it’s not really evening out. If someone can explain this a little better, I’d really appreciate it!
